there in a second. hang on to that thought. greg, you and i take care of florida. want to go first? >> greg: i want to talk about pennsylvania. >> eric: hold the thought. >> greg: bill clinton is in philly. did you hear what he said to the crowd there? he said who wants a president who will knowingly and repeatedly tell you something that isn't true? apparently he is running again. who knew it? he's testing the waters. did he do it third term? are we talking about florida? florida is tight. you know what it is? it's getting your blood test results. the action is quick, takes a week to get results and it could be catastrophe. >> bob: taken in the early morning. florida. >> eric: florida -- put the graphic up one more time. understand something about florida. florida is interesting. the panhandle which is an earlier time zone so you have two different time zones in florida. also florida breaks down this way. the southern part of florida is typically a democrat win. from the mid-state down, i-4 corridor that cuts the state in half. south of it, democrats. north of the i-4 corridor is typically republi
will be decided, president obama leads in five of them. only holds on an average lead in florida. this is why mitt romney will not give up on campaigning until the bitter end. he's back on the stump tomorrow. in a last-ditch effort to pull off a shocker in these two states. it's not surprising. there are efforts underway to make it harder for people to vote. you're seeing the result of manmade voter suppression. lines for early voting stretched around corners in ohio. make no mistake, this is a calculated decision to limit access to polls. ohio secretary of state john husted has been the focal point of a lot of criticism. he approved the restriction on early voting around the state. the same is happening in florida. voters waited as late as 2:30 a.m. to cast a ballot this weekend. voters reported wait times of up to, i cannot believe this number, seven hours. more people voting in democratic-leaning areas is bad for the gop. republican governor rick scott reduced number of early voting days and was able to defeat a court challenge to uphold his ruling in most of the state of florida. republicans,
at the moment. but i'm not going to be a total waffle guy this evening. i think mitt romney will win florida. if the governor wins ohio as well, he will be the next president of the united states. but that's a big if. president obama seems to have blunted romney's momentum over the weekend. talking points predicted that would happen last week. because of hurricane sandy, and because the national media simply refuses to cover the libyan situation. so while romney had momentum one week ago, the storm stalled it. and that's where we are tonight. both candidates slugging it out, momentum for both somewhat subdued. in just about four hours the good folks in dixville, noch, new hampshire will cast the first ballots. i love the notch. nature at its best up there romney will most likely carry the notch. but new hampshire seems to be leaning obama. if president obama loses the election, it will be because he could not convince americans that his big government philosophy would improve the economy. even though mr. obama had trouble in other areas like libya, it is the economy that has made this electi
, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
.. the storm will also make voting tomorrow tricky in florida.for l let's bring in janice dean attem the fox weather center. great to have you with us with . >> thanks. i wish i could bring eat better news. just dealing with such an impact from sandy. millions without power. we are hopin that neighbors get together to really help the folks that are in need, because teeratures are below freezing tonight. we will be dealing with another storm. let's start off with election day. not much to talk about. the potential for showers, maybe some snow, just snow shows across the midwest. not an organized system, and then or watching the development of this nor'easter of the east coast, the southeast coast line. we will see light showers across georgia, south carolina, and north carolina. nothing to organized until we get into wednesday. election forecast looks good. you will watch this developing system that will eventually go up in effect is in the northeast. a few showers, and/or snow showers for the upper midwest and great lakes. west coast looks really good. we could see a few spattered showers ac
hampshire. i think we have an even chance of winning virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> check those numbers, what do you make of those states? is that a good list? >> i think the ceiling is somewhere 300, 303 if you want to be exact the numbers i've done. if you throw in north carolina it could be 318 max. that's possible. they could all be 51, 49 at the end of the day. i do want to say i think a lot of us, we're sort of victims of 2004. before 2004 we were all more convinced of the challenger incumbent rule. that somehow challengers always got the undecided and then a tie goes to the challenger. then you're happened when bush won frankly as many of the undecided as he did. then you'd have to go back to '76 the last time the person with momentum lost at the end. lost the popular vote. that was ford. ford had the momentum but carter won in the end. even gore, he had the last-second momentum. he did win the popular vote. having the momentum has it in the end. >> what's it going to mean for obama if obama wins it is the ground level organizat
and florida. if laura trevelyan is in miami. clyde is in cleveland. let's start with you. have aligned and as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country -- have the lines been as long there as they have been everywhere else in the country? >> they have been pretty long. at about 7:00 this morning, the actual stores open at 6:30 a.m., and there were already 20 people there. and it was a slow trickle. election officials are estimating about 70%, not as high in the previous election. but lorimar, millions have already voted in early voting -- but remember, millions have already voted in early voting in this state. we did see joe biden breeze in to try to shore up the final push for votes. president obama has had a bit of a lead during the last few months and it has tightened in the last few months -- few weeks. unemployment is lower. there are fewer foreclosures. there is a sense of optimism here and that has helped president obama, but it is tight. statistically, is still within the margin of error. we could be in for a long night. >> i hope not. thanks very much. laura

states, namely ohio, florida, iowa, and virginia. addressing supporters in wisconsin, president obama said his initial campaign vow of change is still under way. >> when i say, wisconsin, that i know what real change looks like, you have cause to believe me because you have seen the fight for it and you have seen me deliver it. you see the scars on me to prove it. you have seen the gray hair on my head to show you what it means to fight for change. and you have been there with me. after all we have been through together, we cannot give up now. we have got more change to do. >> president obama finished a packed day of campaigning in iowa, the state that effectively launched his white house run with the democratic primary win in 2008. speaking in ohio, mitt romney told supporters that obama has failed to live up to his promise of change. >> i know the president wants you to think about all sorts of diversionary issues that decide what is key in this election, but i think the election comes down to this question -- do you want four more years like the last four years? >> no! >> or do you
doubt about tomorrow's outcome. the president in ohio, wisconsin and iowa. governor romney in florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire. running mates and surrogates also dotting the swing state map. governor romney's got kid rock, bruce springsteen is campaigning with the president, but in the end, it is down to the candidates and often to the candidates' last vocal cord. >> now's the time to keep pressing forward. educate our kids and train new workers. bring troops home. care for our veterans. broaden opportunity. grow our middle class. restore our democracy mange sure that no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter how you started out, no matter what your last name is, you can make it here in america if you try. wisconsin, that's why i need your vote. and if you're willing to work with me again and knock on some doors with me, make some phone calls for me, turn out for me, we'll win wisconsin. we'll win this election. >> he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance in a day or two. >> millions of people
at it. have you seen what is going on in florida and ohio? we have the devastating details for you. >> at some polling sites there have been parking problems, coupled that with the wait and some people just leave. [ protesting ] >> cenk: and as republicans think they might lose the election, here comes the elbows. it will be g.o.p. on g.o.p. but guess who at @tytoncurrent coverage. with unrivaled social media straight from the campaigns, the pundits and viewers like you. with exclusive analysis and commentary from al gore - someone who knows a thing or two about close elections. >> now that's politically direct. >> election night coverage begins this tuesday at 8 eastern. >> our country's future depends on you. >> only on current tv. >> brought to you by communications workers of america. bring jobs home now. >> that's mitt romney landing in ohio. so everybody's rallying, both sides trying to get their base out. very important obviously how they voted especially in ohio and swing states like florida as well. so that is where we've already had early voting. some people have already
to. been more matter of fact and businesslike, particularly virginia, florida, and ohio. you hear some enthusiastic happy talk from operatives. >> where does that come from on the republican side? what is it based upon? >> they're monitoring precincts. everybody is monitoring their own turnout. >> isn't the republican turnout always great? >> there's always a possibility it was going to be higher on election day because of the emphasis on early voting for the obama campaign, but one of my theories on this has always been both sides could be right about their own turnout. they just have been i think incorrect assumption because they're right on their turnout model that the other guy is wrong. >> this is a time before the exit polls really start coming in when you have to call what i think of as my golden sources. these are people state by state -- >> and they're state guys. >> state guys and gals that i have dealt with for a long time and that i trust. i talked to the guy i trust the most in pennsylvania, our home state. he's a republican. he said that on his side, he said turnout
from 2008. in florida nearly 4.5 million people have voted early or by absentee coming very close to the number from last time. president obama voted early this year. he'll do some swing state interviews and then play in his traditional election day basketball game while awaiting the returns from chicago. mr. romney has added two last-minute campaign stops in ohio and pennsylvania after he votes in massachusetts. running mate paul ryan will vote in wisconsin before joining romney in boston. and vice president joe biden will vote in delaware before joining the president in chicago. nbc's tracie pots is in cincinnati, ohio. she has the details on the candidates' final frantic day of campaigning. tracie, good morning to you. >> reporter: we're at a polling place in ohio. already a busy day. a busy crowd back and forth. lots of people planning to vote here in ohio, but they weren't the first to vote this morning. for the first time ever and with its lowest turnout in almost 50 years, a tie this morning in tiny dixville, notch. just after midnight they cast five votes for president oba

. >> provisional ballots could be a four-letter word in the coming days. >> that's right. >>> florida, another critical battle ground state. the campaign's final days were marked by controversy over the state's early voting. if it's clear if you do the math, for mitt romney to become president, he needs to win in florida. we're joined by ashleigh banfield in miami. good morning. >> the last republican president to actually take the white house without taking florida was warren harding back in '24. i suppose there's a first time to change that trend. john, 829 precincts in miami-dade and i'm just at one of them. i'm here two hours early. it's dark, it's lovely out. take a look behind me, though. are you ready for this? two hours until the polls open and we've already got a line of several people. i had a quick chat with some of them, john. already some of these people have waited in early voting lines for six hours. so they are very keen to get going. i want to show you quickly as i give you stats on some of the early voting by the way. we have 11.4 million registered voters in florida. we have
romney, his fastest way to 270 is where he went today. florida's 29, virginia's 13, throw in new hampshire's 4. and then, of course, he needs those 18 in ohio he would like to get. and that would get him right at the number, right up there, brian, at 270. so the schedule told you everything. >> and the battle ground state numbers, chuck, tell us more. >> they do tell you more. but there's something else i want to show you about what -- how to watch election night tonight and that is going to be all of the polls that close at the -- before 9:00 tomorrow night. look, it's all on the east coast. and we're going to learn something very quickly. are the southern states too close to call by 9:00, brian, or are we calling them for romney quickly, or are the industrial states going to be called quickly for obama. that will tell us how the night is going. >> chuck todd with something of a viewers' guide to tomorrow night. when we will see him next. chuck todd across democracy plaza from us. and with us here in the studio, moderator of "meet the press," david gregory and andrea mitchell. i
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a
: look at this. pennsylvania and florida will be called early. polls will be closing early. if pennsylvania goes long and late be careful, that means romney is eng doing better than obama is doing and maybe it goes to romney. if florida goes late, everyone thinks romney should go early, called early. if florida goes late it goes the other way. >> kimberly: i can see the dana perino eyeballs. >> greg: a little gremlin from the woods. >> kimberly: what are you? >> greg: sprite. spry sprite. dandoor you have anything interesting to say that doesn't include the word "jasper"? >> dana: i do. eric knows numbers but i'm talk about gut and heart. peggy noonan noticed this. the republicans across the country gone from anti-obama to pro-mitt. you don't get the crowd, enthusiasm, the goosebump commercials. i am not deep in the weeding on numbers but i think it's important. one other thing. thing that is impressive about america this time around in the presidential cycle that is negative. we all thought during the primary that mormonism, and romney's religion would be a really big deal
of time zones. on the eastern time zone with polls closing teen 7:00 and 8:30 in florida, the romney campaign think those safe. virginia a toss up. ohio, the crucial battleground state, both put more money and time in ohio than any state. romney campaign believes they have a shot in pennsylvania. romney and ryan are going to pittsburgh as we speak and to new hampshire, all the polls will close, first, and you can see each of them a key battleground state. and the question of the possibility of what happens later in the evening. romney campaign has set aside the emphasize on iowa and nevada where the president had a bit of an edge in the polls. they are particularly focused on colorado. romney campaign thinks colorado could be the opportunity west of the mississippi to pick up a key battleground state mountain time and late because of how close it is. historically, neither candidate has been able to break out of the polls longer than any time in the history of modern campaign, this is the closest we have seen. the amount of money is exceeding anything anyone imagined and a doesn't pos
,000 it was florida, four years ago, ohio and this year, ohio is going to be key. let's keep it in virginia for a minute. you talked a minute go ago about the senate race going on between tim kaine and between george allen. tim kaine in his gubernatorial race, allen and also mark warner. virginia has gone increasingly purple. you have a situation where northern virginia, especially n areas of louden county and fairfax county, they have gotten progressively more democratic over the last few years. now, it's a different picture altogether when you go down to the county, parts of danville, over to roanoke. that is solid republican ground. for the most part, the formula to winning virginia, the last few election cycles, is to run hard if you're a democrat in the northern parts of virginia and do what can you around areas like richmond. that is a very urban voting block, strongly democratic base and see if can you piece together northern virginia, say richmond and newport news. the difference this year, though, is that mitt romney's campaign turned the logic on its head. they said no, we're goin
. how many stops did you have? >> we did about 20. we did ohio and florida and we just finished in pennsylvania. >> you had five stops? >> norm coleman and i did all of them together. we had john voigt with us today in pennsylvania. and i was very encouraged by pennsylvania. i campaigned there a lot. i was, i was there in '04 when we came two points away from taking it. i was very encouraged by pennsylvania. i think there's a tremendous amount of activity there. the party is really energized. every group that we met with the crowds are really enthusiastic. they feel like they are relevant all of a sudden, all the talk about ohio, all the talk about florida, all of a sudden they are relevant. i think the party people, i think we have the enthusiasm factor on our side so we can pull it out. >> i have gotten the internals, i have seen them. right now it's tied. you saw the crowd last night. very interesting as we come down to the wire remember one thing i think most people will acknowledge, charles krauthammer said this and others, romney had all the momentum coming out of the deba
and wisconsin. well, mitt romney, florida, 29, virginia's 13, throw in new hampshire's four, and of course he needs the 18 in ohio he would like to get. and that would get him right up at the number there, brian, the 270, so the schedule told you everything. >> and the battleground state numbers tell us more, chuck. >> reporter: they do tell you a little more, but there is something else i want to show you about how to watch election night tonight. and that is going to be all the polls that close before 9:00 tomorrow night, look, it is all on the east coast. and we're going to learn something very quickly. are the southern states too close to call by 9:00, brian, or are we calling them for romney fairly quickly? are the industrial states too close to call or are we calling them quickly for oma? that will tell us how the night is going. >> all right, chuck todd with something of a viewer's guide for tomorrow night, we'll see him, across democracy plaza for us, and here at the studio, david gregory with "meet the press" and andrea mitchell are here. david, i took notes during the report, the ro
battleground states of ohio, florida, virginia and pennsylvania reports that long lines already today. president obama and mitt romney await their fate from you. it is november 6, finally. martha: good morning, i'm martha maccallum. you have got these nominees getting ready for a long day of hoping and waiting. a lot of nerves frayed. governor romney plans to do a little bit more campaigning. but before heading out the governor voting in his home state of massachusetts. the romney team is headed for three pivotal swing states. as kevin madden said this morning, if you know this guy as he does, he won't spend the day waiting around. he and paul ryan will make an 11th hour appeal to voters. bill: paul ryan meets him in pittsburgh before leading to richmond, virginia. wendall goler is live in chicago where president obama will await election results. john, yesterday was not the last day of campaigning. how did this decision to campaign today come about for governor romney? >> reporter: it's not over until it's over. we talked to campaign advisers who said they are sitting on the tarmac i
tomorrow, president in i had high, wisconsin, the governor in florida, virginia, earlier in new hampshire. in the end it is down to the candidate and often to the candidate's last vocal chord. >> fired up. ready to go. fired up, ready to go. >> you know, if anyone wants to know where the energy is, anyone following american politics wants to know where the energy is, look right here in this room. >> each candidate trying to get even one more person to vote tomorrow. millions of people have already voted. early voting has been a blessing and a curse. in ohio and florida, limited hours made for long lines over the weekend. take a look at that. that could make post election legal battles if either state is pivotal. we'll talk to our legal analyst jeffrey toobin about that. that is a very real possibility. with me here tonight john king, also political analyst david gergen, gloria borger. ari fleischer, an occasional unpaid political adviser for the romney campaign. paul begala senior adviser for president obama's senior pac. i want you to listen to a clip and get your response. the first one
